Shea D’s sound is a cocktail of jazz, pop and soul enriched by various percussive instruments.
Peter and Juliet have been performing in the Niagara region and around the globe for years individually and then when they met in 2006 thought it a good idea to collaborate. This is when they formed the Shea D Duo.
Ever since they have been performing in Canada and across the globe. So far they have performed in Morocco, Brazil, the Caribbean and Hong Kong and they look forward to performing abroad even more.
They call Niagara home and you can find them all over the region in the Spring, Summer and Fall. Peter Shea and Juliet Dunn are the Shea D Duo. Together their sound is a cocktail of jazz, pop and soul enriched by various percussive instruments. Their love for music shines through in every performance.
